Ki Mobility Catalyst 5 and 5Vx

by Ki Mobility
Buy From:$2,195.00

Ki Mobility’s flagship product, the Catalyst 5 has since redefined the ultra-lightweight folding market by raising the bar in weight, performance, durability and functionality. Weighing in at 23lbs and constructed from ultra-lightweight 7000 series aluminum, the Catalyst 5 is arguably the best choice in high-performance folding wheelchairs. With our largest selection of options to help you customize and configure your chair, the Catalyst 5 makes daily life easier, no matter what the day brings.

Reimbursement for center of gravity (CG) can get complicated. The Catalyst 5Vx makes it a little easier. The VX has the performance you have come to expect from a Catalyst, with a little bit less adjustment of the axle plate and few less options. The Catalyst 5Vx is coded K0005.

Features

Ki Mobility Catalyst 5

300 lb. Standard Weight Capacity – NEW!

Weighing in at a mere 14.2 lb. transport weight*, Catalyst 5 is the lightest and strongest folding wheelchair on the market with a 300 lb. standard weight capacity! A heavy duty option is also available.

*Transport Weight: 16×16 standard configuration. Without rear wheels and no footrests. For your reference, a standard pair of 24” spoke wheels w/ a 1” high pressure tire and aluminum hand rim weighs 6.064 lbs.

The Catalyst Difference

Catalyst 5 takes advantage of all of the “Catalyst Difference” design features to allow you to fit, adjust and ride with confidence.  A defining characteristic of each chair is its axle plate which we will highlight below.

Standard And Curved Axle Plates

With the Catalyst 5 you have the ability to adjust your Center of Gravity (CG), a critical design criteria for a K0005 class chair.  Both axle plate options, standard and curved, are machined from Billet 6061-T6 aluminum and offer finite adjustment of the CG and rear seat height.  3/16″ of CG adjustment over a 3 ½” range is a snap with the innovative 3D locking index washer design.  It only requires one wrench. The standard axle plate offers 1″ adjustments in rear-seat height and 1° adjustments of wheel camber while the curved axle plate offers a more discrete ½” of fine tuning adjustments in the rear seat.

Front Frame Styles

Catalyst 5 offers the option of a swing away front end featuring our patented footrests or 70° or 80° fixed frames.  The swing away hangers come in 4 bends (60°, 70°, 80° & 90°) are light and easy to use and so strong we offer a lifetime warranty.

WC-19 Transit Approved

Transit Tested and approved. User weight capacity up to 300lbs.

Wheelchairs Are About Wheels

The Catalyst 5 offers Ki Mobility’s full line of specially designed Ki spoke wheels with precision machined hubs and hard anodized handrims.  Utilizing straight pull spokes this wheel promotes a stiffer and stronger wheel while the hard anodize handrim is resistant to scratching so they keep that “NEW” look longer.  We also offer the full array of industry standard wheels and casters such as Spinergy, Natural Fit, Frog Legs and Topolino.

Mags Can Be High Performance Too

Ki Mobility proudly offers the ultra-sleek and lightweight X-Coretm mags.  These wheels have far greater stiffness and rigidity than conventional mags while keeping the weight to only 1 lb. more than spokes. Now available in 20″, 22″ and 24″.

Catalyst 5Vx is one of the lightest and strongest folding chairs on the market with its NEW 300 lb. standard weight capacity! A heavy duty option is also available.
